Master & Apprentice is a canon novel by Claudia Gray. The book was published by Del Rey and released on April 16, 2019. The book focuses on Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi roughly seven years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.

Publisher's summaryEdit

An unexpected offer threatens the bond between Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi as the two Jedi navigate a dangerous new planet and an uncertain future.

A Jedi must be a fearless warrior, a guardian of justice, and a scholar in the ways of the Force. But perhaps a Jedi's most essential duty is to pass on what they have learned. Master Yoda trained Dooku; Dooku trained Qui-Gon Jinn; and now Qui-Gon has a Padawan of his own. But while Qui-Gon has faced all manner of threats and danger as a Jedi, nothing has ever scared him like the thought of failing his apprentice.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has deep respect for his Master, but struggles to understand him. Why must Qui-Gon so often disregard the laws that bind the Jedi? Why is Qui-Gon drawn to ancient Jedi prophecies instead of more practical concerns? And why wasn't Obi-Wan told that Qui-Gon is considering an invitation to join the Jedi Council—knowing it would mean the end of their partnership? The simple answer scares him: Obi-Wan has failed his Master.

When Jedi Rael Averross, another former student of Dooku, requests their assistance with a political dispute, Jinn and Kenobi travel to the royal court of Pijal for what may be their final mission together. What should be a simple assignment quickly becomes clouded by deceit, and by visions of violent disaster that take hold in Qui-Gon's mind. As Qui-Gon's faith in prophecy grows, Obi-Wan's faith in him is tested—just as a threat surfaces that will demand that Master and apprentice come together as never before, or be divided forever.

Plot summaryEdit

MASTER & APPRENTICE
It is a time of peace. The GALACTIC REPUBLIC, which has governed
for thousands of years, has provided prosperity to many worlds and
opportunity to most. Only a few shadows of conflict darken the
galaxy—and these are handled by the JEDI KNIGHTS, the guardians
of peace and justice throughout the Republic.

One of those conflicts arises on the planet Teth, a source of corrup-
tion that threatens many nearby systems. The Jedi Council sends QUI-
GON JINN and his young Padawan to investigate. But the criminal
element on Teth has chosen not to cooperate…

ContinuityEdit

According to Claudia Gray, Master & Apprentice is set roughly seven years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, and Obi-Wan Kenobi is about 17 years old.[2]
